    Thanks for that, that's correct,

    Bupa told me that as long as I upgrade from a Single to Single Parent or Family policy within 60 days of child's birth - no waiting periods to be served for the baby and same level of cover as adult policy holder.

    Good luck with it, if you're partnered you're not really a single parent so Bupa could play hardball but it's your policy

    I was told the same thing by a BUPA representative.

    She advised me to stay on a single policy and have mine include pregnancy but leave DH on the basic cover.
    Then to upgrade to a family one within 60 days after the birth.

    thats what we have done - as hubby does not need top hospital cover at this stage.
